Testing Instagram influencers’ product recommendations – Jasco Mask & Peel Liquid Masking Tape & Primer
Over the previous few months, I’ve seen about ten DIY Instagram influencers advocate a product known as liquid masking tape and primer. I’ve seen two totally different manufacturers really useful, and the one I’ve discovered domestically is Jasco Masks & Peel.
The Instagrammers I observe rave about this product and the way wonderful it’s, so once I was prepared to color the 15-lite port on the residence fitness center this weekend, I grabbed a quart of Jasco Masks & Peel from Residence Depot to strive it out and see for those who match the reward.
The product will be brushed on or sprayed on, however clearly, I had to make use of a brush. The directions additionally stated to use a thick layer, so I did not attempt to watch out on the glass. Because the product can be utilized on wooden as effectively (that is the promoting level – it goes straight to glass and wooden), I attempted to watch out with the half that was on the wooden components of the door. And I discovered it slightly troublesome to easy out these areas so they do not present brush strokes.
It took me about 20 minutes to color the liquid masks on all 15 home windows after which I needed to let it dry earlier than portray the door. The product turns white after which dries clear. After clear, it may be painted.
Nicely, that is the place the comfort and ease of use of this product comes all the way down to it for me. I began making use of the masks round 9pm, and I anticipated it to dry rapidly (I anticipated an hour tops) to use two coats of paint and end the door earlier than going to mattress. However once I lastly determined to fall asleep round 11:20 pm, that is what the door regarded like…
Thus, after two hours of drying, solely two of the 15 panes had been utterly dry. No concept how lengthy the entire thing took to dry as a result of I went to mattress. This was irritating and positively not what I anticipated. I do not suppose I’ve ever heard any of those Instagram influencers speak about how lengthy these items take to dry.
The following morning it was all dry and clear (this door has matte movie on the opposite aspect which is why you continue to cannot see via it regardless that the masks is dry and clear)…
So from that time it was fairly straightforward. I painted the door with two coats of paint, sanding flippantly with 220 grit sandpaper between coats. After which, after the second layer had dried, I used a field cutter with a model new sharp razor blade, scored the perimeters of every panel, and peeled the masks off the panel. I confess that I actually loved this course of. 😀
Scoring and peeling all 15 panels was a reasonably fast course of. It in all probability took quarter-hour to do your complete door, and there was nowhere the place the paint bleeds below the masks like tape does.
So what’s my total score of the product?
I like that. I might give it 4 out of 5 stars.
I actually like the benefit of use and I like that it does an important job of sealing that hole between the trim and the glass so there aren’t any gaps and no paint seepage such as you get with tape typically. And I actually loved the scoring and peeling course of on the finish. That was very rewarding.
The one draw back was the drying time. I didn’t anticipate it. I anticipated it to take an hour tops. However when two hours glided by and I wasn’t even midway dry, it pissed off me.
However now that I do know what to anticipate, I will know the right way to work round it sooner or later. If I am planning on portray a door on Saturday, I will know that I would like to use the masks on Friday evening earlier than I’m going to mattress. That approach it is going to be dry and prepared once I’m prepared to color on Saturday.
Every little thing else was nice! I like to recommend it and suppose it is an important product so long as you recognize what to anticipate with that drying time and may plan for it.
Facet word: I am certain a few of you’ve gotten seen and are questioning about that hole between the door and the doorframe on the prime of the closed door within the second picture of this put up. It is arduous to consider, however once I hung that door and put in the trim, it lay completely flat in opposition to the door body from prime to backside when it was closed. And now, when the door is touching the jamb on the backside, there is a huge hole on the prime.
It is extremely irritating, and that is as a result of (1) our home is on a pier and beam basis that’s continually shifting and shifting as the bottom strikes and modifications, and (2) we have been experiencing horrible drought situations right here, and because the begin final yr. Our lake, which is the town’s supply of ingesting water, is so low it is slightly scary, frankly.
And naturally, drought situations have an effect on the soil, which impacts our basis, which impacts every thing in our residence. I’ve seen modifications, cracks, and gaps up to now yr that I’ve by no means skilled in our almost ten years on this home. For some time, I used to be barely in a position to open the again door to the toilet that overlooks Cooper’s yard. Then we bought a very good downpour and the door was simpler to open and shut. However we’re not even near what we have to restore the soil to pre-drought situations for the gaps and cracks to shut. So for now, I stay with it, which is sort of a problem for a perfectionist like me. 😀
